Galatasaray v Vakifbank

Other sports - Champions League - 27 Feb 17:30

This Volleyball tip comes from the Womens Champions League match between Galatasaray and Vakifbank.

Both of these teams have already qualified for the next round so neither side need to win which straight away makes these odds look huge.

Vakifbank were in the same situation at the weekend and after the first set rested a couple of their best players and looked quite average without them, losing 3-1 to Bursa.

In general they haven't been as strong this season they don't have a lot in reserves, particularly when they leave Zhu Ting out and it would be surprising to see her get too much action in this game, she's struggled with injuries a little this season and they'll want to keep her fresh with the playoffs coming.

As I say Galatasaray don't need to win either but a win for them would do a lot for their confidence and I still think they'll go for this one.

With 9 wins out of 10 they're one of the most in form teams in Europe at the moment and they even took a point of the Turkish leaders Eczacibasi away in the league, a team that beat Vakifbank 3-0 home and away.

They have lost all 3 matches against Vakifbank this season but 2 of them have been away from home and the last 2 matches have been very close, in both matches Galatasaray reached 24 points in the 4th set to nearly take the matches to tiebreaks.

They seem to have more squad depth than Vakifbank and can afford to weaken their team more than their opponents after spending big in the summer.

They're in the Champions League this year after beating Vakifbank over 2 legs in the Turkish league semi finals last year, including a 3-0 at home.
